AN ATHLETIC track in Cockatoo will be upgraded as part of a State Government grant.
Daniel Mulino MP for Eastern Victoria announced a $100,000 Community Sports Infrastructure Fund grant to deliver the Mountain Road Reserve Athletics track upgrade.
The grant will enable the upgrade of the athletics track by installing sub-surface drainage and irrigation.
Mr Mulino said: “We promised the Cardina Shire community the great sporting facilities it deserves, and that’s exactly what we’re delivering.”
“They love their sport in the Cardinia Shire, and this fabulous project will mean participants of all abilities will be able to strut their stuff at a facility they can be proud of.”
Grassroots sports clubs are the lifeblood of Victoria’s suburbs and towns, according to Minister for Sport John Eren.
He said $10 million in funding would be put toward women’s changerooms as part of the grant delivered state-wide.
“Victoria is the sporting state, and we want it to stay that way. It means happy and healthy Victorians, and a stronger state,” Mr Eren said.
